Re: harmful effects of brainwave entrainment?
I have been experimenting with Isochronic tones for Brainwave Entrainment for almost 3 weeks.
The very first one I listened to had an effect on me within the first minute. I became slightly disoriented and floaty. It surprised me and I stopped it, and within 10 minutes the feeling had totally cleared.
This made me extremely curious, so I began researching much more about what it is and what it can be used for.
I tried it again, and had similar effects. I was trying a variety of differing types, but mostly for anxiety, emotional health, depression, etc.
After a week of experimenting, and at the end of a long day of online training, my brain began auto-entraining on its own. It was a VERY euphoric, floaty feeling, with extreme bliss and relaxation. I actually considered I may be experiencing a stroke, as I have heard of them described that way before, but I was feeling so good I really didnt care. The experience lasted for 5 hours gradually recovering in waves, and I went to sleep with it, woke in the morning with it, but much less powerful. By mid morning I had almost fully recovered from the great feelings.
I took a break from BWE.
Since that time my mind has auto-entrained 2 additional times, but not as strongly as the first one. I can feel it wanting to entrain frequently, playing at the edges of my brain.
I did basic motor function tests during the times I have entrained and there was no apparent loss of any functions or balance, however its so distracting I would not recommend driving under this influence.
I described how I felt to a friend of mine and he said thats how he felt when he discovered "inner peace" through meditation activities.
I'm not sure I understand whats happening to me, but I'm not sure I'm bothered by it. My brain halves seem to be waking up and talking to each other more and it feels good.
I do believe I haven't been more relaxed and happier than I have been in quite some time.
In the time it took me to write this note, i'm kinda feeling floaty and relaxed from the concentration on it.
In a way it feels like being on codeine, but without the balance issues.
